OBD-II is your onboard diagnostic tool. It is usually located right under the dash on drivers side. Your Mechanic would plug in a scanner tool (you can purchase these-PepBoys) if there are any issues with your car like your check engine light..etc will give him the "code" this is very helpful in narrowing down the problem. OBD-II were manditory on all Cars made 1996 or later.
